One of the very last of the 16-valve cars, this wonderful white Lancia Delta Integrale was first registered on the 10th of February 1992. With just four previous owners, the vendor bought it four years ago from Richard Thorne who had been servicing it for many years.
In storage with him for 12 of its 28 years due to its owner being overseas, it was recommissioned and partially resprayed by him in 2016. Last serviced in October 2019, it is running beautifully and looking wonderful.
Only for sale because the vendor has run out of space (sound familiar?) this is your chance to get your hands on a genuine modern rallying icon.
The Delta has received localised paintwork during its 2016 recommissioning, when the front and rear screens were removed to enable Richard Thorne’s team to carry out some repairs there and around the sunroof.
The refurbished white bodywork is beautifully set-off by those freshly refurbished, diamond-cut alloy wheels. It’s an iconic shape, and the simplicity of the colour allows the purposeful lines and stance to shine.
The rest of the bodywork is as good as the paint; with ripple-free flanks, dent-free panels, and an absence of the sort of wear ‘n’ tear it presents beautifully. Sure, the shutlines are never going to give the Germans a sleepless night but there’s nothing there that would concern us at all.
The glass is good bar the windscreen, which has a small stonechip in it. It’s outside the swept area though, so isn’t an MOT concern.
The OE alloy wheels were refurbished with the correct anthracite centres and diamond-cut finish to the outer edge as part of the car’s recommissioning in 2016. They’re still looking terrific and are shod with matching Toyo Proxes tyres, all of which have a good amount of tread.
As we will never tire of explaining, our experience shows that matching high-quality tyres are an infallible sign of a caring and mechanically sympathetic owner who is prepared to spend the appropriate amount in maintaining their car properly. Their presence does not, of course, preclude the need for a thorough inspection - something the vendor would welcome, by the way – but it does perhaps give you an insight into their attitude towards maintenance.
Issues are few. Aside from the inevitable stonechips and minor marks, some of the cap-head screws on the front headlight surrounds are a little rusty, there’s a small run of paint on the offside corner of the rear bumper, and some of the window rubbers have started to perish. But, given the reputation Lancia had back-in-the-day, such a small To Do list is a bit of a blessing, isn’t it?
